First we only want to be seen, but once we’re seen, that’s not enough anymore. After that, We want to be remembered.
Love is salt, like sea-water - I drink and i die of thirst.... Water! Water! Yet the more I drink, the more i burn. Love! Thou art bitter as the seaweed.
Sånn er det noen ganger (...). Når andre tvinger sin verden på meg, mens jeg har lyst til å tenke på helt andre ting.
You lay laughter over the dark parts. The more dark parts, the more you have to laugh. With defiance, with abandon, with hysteria, any way you can.
People who can't see what's ahead of them populate their tomorrows with monsters.
Every great genius is mad upon the subject in which he is greatest. The unsuccessful madman is disgraced and called a lunatic.
Yet man dies not whilst the world, at once his mother and his monument, remains. His name is lost, indeed, but the breath he breathed still stirs the pine-tops on the mountains, the sound of the words he spoke yet echoes on through space; the thoughts his brains gave birth to we have inherited today; his passions are our cause of life; the joys and sorrows that he knew are our familiar friends - the end from which he fled aghast will surely overtake us also!
To realize you are the source of your own loneliness is not a cure for it. But it is a step toward seeing that it is not inevitable, and that such a choice is not irrevocable.
A child sees the acorn of his daily life, but a man looks back on the oak.
Dette er en av de absolutt beste bøkene jeg har lest på lenge! Den provserer, river i hjertet, får tårene til å trille og varmer i sjelen. Anbefales på det aller sterkeste!

I once heard a tale of a man
Who spli himself in two.
The one part never changed at all;
the oter grew and grew.
The changeless part was always true,
The growing part was always new,
And I wondered, when the tale was through,
Which part was me, and which was you.
Welders and smiths are tough. Sons of bitches have problems of their own.
I carry the seeds of death within me and plant them wherever I linger long enough to love.
Helt enig, jeg hadde elsket å satt tenna litt ordentlig i denne historien, kjenner jeg nesten blir litt frustrert over at det var det hele nå som jeg er ferdig. Heldigvis for meg er jeg såpass fersk Hobb fan at jeg har en hel serie til å se frem til å lese før det er tomt!
Kort bok eller ei, absolutt verdt å lese!
